Intermediate : Dam break on shallow wet bed

At t=0, the gate is released with a prescribed velocity allowing the collapse of a water column and propagation of a dam break wave. The depth of the wet bed (shallow/deep) influences on the shape of the propagating flow. Warning : the mesh is fine, 8 CPUs or more are recommended for this case.
